About Battle of the Burbs/FAQs
5K, 10K and Kids Fun Run that benefit our communities.
How it Works
Choose Your ‘Burb
Battle of the ‘Burbs is a family-friendly 5K, 10K and Kids Fun Run hosted by NCMIC on our campus in Clive. Because we are uniquely located at the intersection of three suburbs (Clive, Waukee and West Des Moines) it seemed fitting to create a friendly battle and raise money for community efforts.
In 2020, we expanded our ‘burbs to include Johnston and Urbandale.
When runners select a ‘burb, 100% of those registration fees go back to that community to support non-profits and community betterment efforts. Don’t worry - if you don’t live in one of those suburbs, we still encourage you to join the fun and walk or run. Then select “all of the above” when registering and your registration fee will be split among the suburbs.
